    Nice.

    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    thanks dev! here's a new one i'm working on:

    pinalene dreams
    emanate like sun beams
    from my third eye
    in the begging was the word "I"
    splitting infinity
    into a trinity
    sky ever deep, a Pleiadian prism
    i never sleep, no circadian rhythm
    row, row your boat down the Lethean stream
    merrily, verily, life is but a meme

    T. S. Eliot...
    We shall not cease from exploration
    And the end of all our exploring
    Will be to arrive where we started
    And know the place for the first time.
    Through the unknown, unremembered gate
    When the last of earth left to discover
    Is that which was the beginning;
    At the source of the longest river
    The voice of the hidden waterfall
    And the children in the apple-tree
    Not known, because not looked for
    But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
    Between two waves of the sea.
    Quick now, here, now, always—
    A condition of complete simplicity
    (Costing not less than everything)
    And all shall be well and
    All manner of thing shall be well
    When the tongues of flame are in-folded
    Into the crowned knot of fire
    And the fire and the rose are one.

    !

    I love this part:

    There was one who was famed for the number of things
    He forgot when he entered the ship:
    His umbrella, his watch, all his jewels and rings,
    And the clothes he had bought for the trip.

    He had forty-two boxes, all carefully packed,
    With his name painted clearly on each:
    But, since he omitted to mention the fact,
    They were all left behind on the beach.

    The loss of his clothes hardly mattered, because
    He had seven coats on when he came,
    With three pair of boots—but the worst of it was,
    He had wholly forgotten his name.


    The original poetry posted here is lovely btw I didn't have the chance to read it all yesterday.

    Fire and Ice

    Some say the world will end in fire,
    Some say in ice.

    From what I've tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.

    But if it had to perish twice,
    I think I know enough of hate
    To say that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    As Sol has pointed out "life is but a meme" I wonder how many people realise the importance,
    influence and the implications of "memes"

    As this thread is about poetry I will cut this short and just put a link in for those that are interested.

    Wikipedia: Meme

    I will create a thread on the subject.

    Here's a checklist


    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too:
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
    Or being hated don't give way to hating,
    And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

    If you can dream---and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think---and not make thoughts your aim,
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same:.
    If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools;

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
    And never breathe a word about your loss:
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with Kings---nor lose the common touch,
    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much:
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
    Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And---which is more---you'll be a Man, my son!


    -Rudyard Kipling
